If you'd like to make your own caramel for this recipe, you won't be sorry--homemade caramel is always, always better than anything you can buy. I have a list of my 10 favorite caramel recipes here to get you started. But, if you're a little crunched for time, definitely use pre-made caramel--no shame in that game! If you buy a block, all you need to do is cut it into the right sized pieces. If you buy individually wrapped pieces, unwrap them, microwave them with a spoonful of milk or cream, then pour them into a pan to set into a block before cutting. Easy peasy, and the resulting candy bars will taste like--wait for it--a million dollars.
